North Pond Review

A former Arts and Crafts–style warming house for ice-skaters at Lincoln Park's North Pond, this gem in the woods fittingly champions an uncluttered culinary style. Talented chef Bruce Sherman emphasizes organic ingredients, wild-caught fish, and artisanal farm products. Menus change seasonally, but order the Midwestern favorite walleye pike if available. Like the food, the wine list seeks out boutique producers. The food remains top-notch at brunch but the scene, dense with strollers and high chairs, is far from serene.

  • Food  

    overrated and way too pricey for food and service

    nice location but nothing special once inside. ordinary food, slow service and the lack of originality in both food presentation as well as food itself is not a real draw, location is good though.

  • Chicago and Where Else

    We've never been to Chicago other than changing planes.

    We'd like to go for a few days but that's a lot of flying to spend 3-4 days in one place.

    Any add-ons in the area?

    Thanks. Read more
